King Mountain, OR


Located in southwest Oregon, King Mountain's principal physical facilities consist of an equipment building and short steel-lattice tower supporting two pairs of KS-15676 horn-reflector antennas and a high-performance parabolic ("dish") antenna. Elevated air vents and a tall exhaust pipe for the station's diesel emergency engine-alternator ensure operation under conditions of deep snow, and a covered passage links the building to the site's outhouse for the convenience of visiting technicians.

King Mountain was an unmanned relay (auxiliary) station. A 1976 route map shows that the station linked junction stations at Mount Nebo to the north-northwest and Baldy (near Medford) to the southeast.
